Rodrigo Fernández, Partner at Vouga Abogados, participated as a guest speaker in the annual webinar series "LATAM Year in Review", organised by the Employment Law Alliance (ELA), an organisation that brings together more than 3000 employment and immigration lawyers from more than 100 countries.

This latest "LATAM Year in Review" series took place between 8 and 10 March, with the participation of partners from renowned law firms from other Latin American countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Dominican Republic and Uruguay.

The speakers analysed the most impactful employment and labour changes that took place in their respective countries in 2021, and presented their perspective on labour law issues that could be relevant for companies in the Latin American market in 2022, such as telework, occupational health under Covid-19 collective bargaining, unemployment insurance, outsourcing, workplace safety.

The episode held on Thursday 10 March covered the jurisdictions of Bolivia, Costa Rica, Mexico and Paraguay. Rodrigo was joined by professionals from top law firms in the other three countries: René Claure Veizaga (from Moreno Baldivieso, Bolivia), Alexandra Aguilar (from BLP, Costa Rica) and Juan Carlos de la Vega (from Santamarina y Steta, Mexico).
